Few surfcasters are left along the Jersey Shore, but Jerry Lasko and Maren Toleno each released 10 stripers this morning in their local Ocean County surf. There were lots of birds working offshore, but the bass came in at times and included a few larger fish such as Jerry’s 31-incher.
The Tsunami Sand Eel was best, but Maren also managed one on a popper. As usual, there were no boats or other surfcasters.
A gale warning is up. Southwest winds of 20-25 knots increase to 25-30 with gusts to 40 in the afternoon. Rain is likely.
